1/0=Undefined.

It will be infinity if x only approaches 0, but is still greater than 0.

So, saying 1/0=infinity is wrong.

Actually, it's not wrong, it's actually:

Complex infinity.

Which is exactly what I said when I posted:

"The complex quantity with infinite magnitude but indeterminate phase."

Hmm, thanks to you, I learnt something. This is higher stuff than what I have studied(still in school). :)

But, yeah it should be complex infinity. I corrected those who were simply saying infinity.

No, everyone knows that 6 x 9 = 42.


You mean 6 X 7 = 42.

My math classes was a looooooong time ago but i don't think that 1 / 0 is the same thing as 1 divided by a number which tends to zero. And i don't think infinity is the same thing as tend to infinity.

I think we wrote that using those signs : Posted Image, Posted Image, Posted Image, 0+, 0- and other signs like that. And this was not in a standard match classes. It was very theorical.

The number of time 0 fit in 1 is undefinined. Unless i'm mistaken you can't put a value on it. Infinity (not tend to infinity) is not a value it's a concept.

I could entirely be wrong as it was many years ago i'm now working as a web dev ;) I can hardly compute 10/1 now :(

The answer is the meaning of life and all existence.

So: 1/0 = 42?
